Good morning Beautiful! You can be happy today when you know that God’s favor prepares a way for you. Even when it looks like there is no way. God knows what you can handle, and His goal is to shape you into the image of Christ. He’s not expecting you to be perfect – He wants for you to think, talk, and make decisions more like Christ every day. To help you in this endeavor, He gives you favor, which even more prepares a way for you to be successful. Claim this favor for yourself by knowing God’s Word about it:
Know that favor is a gift from God to you: One of the greatest gifts of accepting Jesus in your heart is that you become a part of God’s family. As a child of God, He enjoys giving you gifts…and when you choose to live your life in obedience to God, the Word says there’s no good thing that God won’t give you. It’s His gift to you. “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalms 84:11
Know that favor is protection: When you have favor, the Word says it will cover you “as with a shield”. A shield is a tool helpful in a battle, and it keeps the enemy’s destruction from harming you. Even when weapons from the enemy are formed to hurt you, they’ll hit your favor…and they won’t work! “For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.” Psalms 5:12
Know that favor makes your work successful. When you have favor, you can walk in confidence every day knowing that your work is effective and will be valid. You work is accepted, recognized and stable. This goes farther than your job, to your PURPOSE. Even when you change jobs or move to a different city, God promises that His favor will keep your purpose effective.
